Hello,

I've tried everything. People give solutions that make no sense to me like delete Silverlight from you applications. Well, I don't have Silverlight. I don't understand why those assumptions are made in the first place. What can I do to fix this? Or is there a way I can go back to using the old hotmail where attachments worked with no problem?

Thank you!

System Configuration: Mac OS X Tiger (10.4.11) / Safari 4.1.3

Hi ohlisa,

I had the same problem and after googling this question, I stumbled onto your question.

After trying different things, it seems to work for me when I click and drag the folders on my desktop and dropping them into the email. The drop isn't anywhere specific, I just plop them anywhere in the white box section where you type your email. I hope this works for you too.

Wow! - thanks for that! I've wasted two days of my life with all sorts of fancy solutions suggested by so-called 'help' desks + people who obviously have way too much time on their hands. Nothing worked - until this simple suggestion! Much appreciated.

Wow- I thought it was issues with my 5 year old scanner. Had planned to buy a new scanner tomorrow. Thank you so much for sharing your expertise. Regards, Bonnie
